The vRealize Orchestrator Management Pack is supported on vRealize Operations Cloud, when the vRealize Orchestrator and vCenter end points are present on premises. However, the vRealize Orchestrator out-of-the-box action Apply Host Security Configuration Rules and the dependent workflows such as Configure Host Security Configuration Data are not supported on vRealize Operations Cloud.

Resolved Issues

  • After upgrading vRealize Operations to 8.0.1 and vRealize Orchestrator Management Pack to 3.1, the custom actions of the vRealize Orchestrator custom library were broken.

     When upgrading from vRealize Operations 7.5 to vRealize Operations 8.0 and above, upgrade vRealize Orchestrator from 3.0 to 3.1.1.

Known Issues

  • When you view the vRealize Orchestrator Workflows Overview dashboard, the Number of Success and Failed Executions widget shows no data.

    When you view the vRealize Orchestrator Workflows Overview dashboard, the Number of Success and Failed Executions widget
    shows no data. This is because the collection time is set to 720 minutes by default. 

    Workaround: Configure the adapter instance Workflow Execution Metric Collection Time such that it falls in the widget time frame. For example, 6 * 60 = 360 Minutes.

  • Executing workflow for multiple objects is not supported in the vRealize Orchestrator adapter.

    You cannot execute workflows for multiple objects in vRealize Orchestrator adapter as it is not supported. 

  • In vRealize Operations Manager, the icons for out of the box worflows are not displayed in the upgraded environment. 

    When you view a list of workflows in vRealize Operations Manager the icons for out of the box worflows are not displayed in the vRealize Operations environment. 

  • The Execute Workflow Action lists vCenter instances that are not configured in vRealize Orchestrator.

    In vRealize Operations Manager lists all the vCenter instances while Execute Workflow Actions on a vCenter instance even though those are not configured in vRealize Orchestrator.

  • The vrops_alert_id for custom workflows is not displayed in the UI

    The vrops_alert_id for custom workflows is not displayed in the UI. However, the alert id is sent in the backend along with the workflow when the user triggers an action on the alert.

    Workaround: None

  • The vRealize Orchestrator metric collection interval changes are not reflected on the adapter instance movement.

    After moving the adapter instance, the Orchestrator.properties should get reflected with the primary node changes but the Orchestrator.properties still reflects the old data.

    Workaround: Edit configuration on all the nodes to change the metric collection interval.
